The Aruba 2530 Switch Series provides security, reliability, and ease of use for enterprise edge, branch office, and SMB deployments. Fully managed switches deliver Layer 2 capabilities with optional PoE+, enhanced access security, traffic prioritization, sFlow, IPv6 host support, and power savings with Energy Efficient Ethernet. The Aruba 2530 Switch Series is easy to use and deploy, and delivers consistent wired/wireless user experience with unified security and management tools such as Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager, Aruba AirWave and cloud-based Aruba Central.
Layer 2 access switch
Easy to deploy and manage with advanced security and network management tools like Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager and Aruba AirWave
Software-defined networking support
Leverages REST APIs to enable automation of network operations, monitoring, and troubleshooting
Automatically configures switch for different settings such as VLAN, CoS, PoE max power, and PoE priority when an Aruba access point is detected
Traffic prioritization (IEEE 802.1p)
allows real-time traffic classification. Supports eight priority levels mapped to either two or four queues, and uses weighted deficit round robin (WDRR) or strict priority
Simplified QoS configuration
Port-based traffic prioritization by specifying a port and priority level. VLAN-based traffic prioritization by specifying a VLAN and priority level.
Aruba Central cloud-based management platform
Offers a simple, secure and cost effective way to manage switches. Complies with RFC 7030 for encryption key enrollment
Supports both cloud-based Central and on-premise AirWave without ripping and replacing switching infrastructure
Remote monitoring (RMON)
Provides advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities for statistics, history, alarms and events. RMON data is retrieved from the switch through a network management platform over SNMP.
